LexisNexis eBooks offer Professionals Reference and Research on the Move

LONDON, 23 November 2010 - LexisNexis UK (, a leading provider of legal, tax and business information and content-enabled workflow solutions, today announced the launch of 13 distinguished texts in eBook format. The initial titles include tax and employment law volumes from Butterworths, Tolleys, and Whillans. Complementing both print and online services, LexisNexis eBooks are available individually, as well as in hardcopy plus eBook sets.


The launch comes as an independent survey of lawyers titled 'Are Lawyers Early Adopters?' reveals that more than three in four lawyers (77 percent) favour digital resources, such as eBooks and online research services, as an addition to their traditional paper-based law libraries.

Users can tailor their eBook to their individual needs by highlighting, annotating and bookmarking key segments. Annotations can be synchronised between devices, e.g., between a PC and a smart phone, making for easier retrieval of information while on the go. Readers can navigate their eBook by contents, index, hyperlinks, and keyword search.
